I have shown my John Calich and my Mark Tinsky pipes. As I went through them I have to say I am a bit surprised that I have so many of them.I figured there were a half-dozen or so but have never really looked at them all in one place. I used to have a dozen I guess, but I sold one to a friend’s wife for her husband’s birthday – a 1973 Tanshell. The first group is the Shell or Shell Briars – I have five of them.You have exceeded the time limit and your reservation has been released.The purpose of this time limit is to ensure that registration is available to as many people as possible.
417574/34 It is in great shape since Dave worked on it. Somewhere along the way I believe someone topped this pipe so it has a smooth, restained rim.
The stamping is quite weak but under a bright light with a lense it reads as follows: DUNHILL SHELL Made in England 3 (this three is the questionable issue – overstamped) N52 PATENT NO.
417574/34 It is in good shape regardless of the age.
Blog by Steve Laug I am currently in the mode of cleaning up pipes in my collection.
I have been polishing and giving them attention as well as taking the time to enjoy them by looking at them and handling each one.
